E3 2023 was expected to be the successful return of the world’s most important video game event after years without a face-to-face presentation. Unfortunately, it seems that the next edition of E3 will be far from the glory of old years, since it will be without its 3 great protagonists: Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation.
According to multiple sources from IGN, one of the most prestigious video game media internationally, Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation decided to get off the boat at E3 2023. In this way, the 3 companies that manage consoles will not have news at the event nor presence in the physical event that will be held in Los Angeles.

Although PlayStation had been out of E3 for some time, the absence of Nintendo and Xbox will attract the attention of many. After all, both companies used to have some sort of presence at the event even in their dry years.
Of course, the reality is that it is not something completely surprising either. After all, both Xbox and Nintendo had slowly moved away from E3 with digital events or finding their own spaces within the E3 framework. Said this, this will be the first occasion in which his presence will be null.

As we’ve spent much of 2022 fine-tuning the shape E3 2023 would take, reflecting on the feedback we solicited, we haven’t sent a single contract to an exhibitor as of earlier this month. We’ve received tremendous interest and verbal commitments from many of the biggest companies in the industry, and when we’re ready to announce the exhibitors, we’re sure it will be a lineup that will make the trip to Los Angeles worthwhile for both the industry and itself. for consumers,” explained ReedPop.
